In a few months, one of the world’s most famous alleged double murderers may be back on the streets again:
OJ Simpson could walk free from jail in a few months after serving less than a third of his sentence before cashing in on his multi-million dollar NFL pension.
The former American football star could be released exactly nine years into his 33-year sentence after he was jailed for a string of crimes including armed robbery and kidnapping in 2008.
A parole board hearing on 3 July is expected to recommend the 69-year-old’s release based on good behaviour.
If the board votes in his favour he could be a free man by 3 October, the earliest possible date for his release.
He needs to secure recommendations to be released from at least four of the seven commissioners at the hearing, something Las Vegas criminal defence attorney Daniel Hill was confident of.
“He’s the kind of person who gets paroled,” Mr Hill told he The Daily Express. “He has done a significant amount of time and, by all accounts, hasn’t caused any problems.”
Once he’s out, maybe he can start looking for the real killers again.
